NEEDS SAVING

Troubles keeping from sleep,

Oh what struggles to keep…

Time to let go

Before he sinks low,

He’ll be an exhausted heap!

Desperation comes,

The pinnacle of his sums…

Adding up fast

To disastrous blast,

Never ready for what comes!

His dad had a similar feat,

Struggling in his sleep…

Sat bolt upright:

“Lord–You take it, Alright?”

And fell into deep, peaceful sleep!

Obsession easily comes,

Will you stick to your guns…

Give it the Lord–

Peace then restored–

Doze off after a few “ho-hums”.
